At the moment im going to a tennis camp that last 5 weeks everyday. Is it possible for me to play college tennis of any type if i work hard??
Yes you most definetly can play tennis in college, although it may not be on the Division 1 level. I go to Sacred Heart University (Division 1) and I attempted to walk on to their tennis team. Unfortunately I did not make it but I was still able to play 2nd singles on the Club tennis team (essentially the JV team). My rommate from this past year played 5th singles on the Post University Varsity team (Division II). I played him and beat him 6-0 6-0, so you can play tennis at college, but it may not be necessarily at the Division I level or on the Varsity Team. I do not regret playing on the club team, we still play other club teams like Yale Umass and Fairfield U. Just as a basline, I played 4 years of highschool tennis on a less than stellar highschool team, and I never had a tennis coach and going into my Junior year of college I am now around a 4.0 NTPR. The average Division I college player is around a 5.0 NTPR so I am not that far off. The best thing to do is to play in some tournaments and play some random people. It will simulate the college tennis experience. Feel free message me about any questions about what schools would be good to attend depending on your level or what you should focus on. Good Luck!
